To the north of Cotonou lies the city of Ganve. Its 12 thousand people reside in bamboo huts on stilts, scattered over a number of kilometers alongside Nokue Lake.
The native buildings, restaurants, shops, and even a hotel are solely 2 m above the water. The native residents object to being photographed, so it is recommended to not take pictures on the territory of Ganve. The city of Abomey is the traditional capital of the dominion of Dahomey. The main attraction of town is the restored Royal Palace and the museum contained in the palace.
